DOLLS is a registered 501 c (3) nonprofit corporation.
What does my ticket pay for?
Our guests will leave with many little trinkets and gifts which all help commemorate the evening and remind them in tangible ways about the love the Father lavishes on them. Dinner is included in the cost. Our research after previous banquets indicated that people felt this entry fee was fair and worthwhile.
What if the cost to attend is a problem?
DOLLS has worked diligently to keep the cost of this event at a minimum for the girls who want to attend. Sadly, families across the metroplex have been deeply hurt financially over the past year and many girls will be hard-pressed for the event cost. If you know of any girls who may have financial concerns that would prevent them from attending this event, please contact us on their behalf and we will line them up with a scholarship. Money should NEVER prevent a girl from joining us for this special event! We will get in touch with scholarship recipients personally and inform them that an anonymous gift was made on their behalf in order that they could attend.
How do I purchase a ticket?
Guests can claim their ticket online at http://betrothalbanquet.eventbrite.com. You will have the option to pay for your ticket online using a credit card or you can mail your payment to DOLLS Headquarters at 1105 E. Main Street #217, Allen, TX 75002. *Please note that your RSVP will not be processed until your payment has been received.
Who is invited to attend Banquet?
Girls from all DOLLS Chapters in the North Dallas area are invited to attend along with their mothers. If moms are unable to attend, that's completely fine. The daughter's involvement will not be hindered in any way. However, this event has become a very special mother/daughter tradition within our ministry that many moms/daughters cherish fondly, so we strongly encourage moms to include themselves as well. Additionally, girls from other area schools that will be starting a DOLLS Chapter on their campus next school year will be joining us too!
What should we wear?
A tradition within this event is for our guests to come dressed in all-white attire. This is done to symbolize the pure righteousness we have been washed with by the blood of Christ. Guests are invited to wear white sundresses, white blouses, white pants, etc. Check out some sample dresses here:
Will dinner be served during the banquet?
Dinner will be served for those students attending. Volunteers are asked to eat prior to the event as time won't allow our volunteers an opportunity to eat.
What time is the banquet?
The banquet will last from 4:00pm-9:00pm.
I am not a mom of a DOLLS girl, but I want to help! Can I volunteer?
Absolutely! In fact, In order to pull off this event, we are in need of a large group of faithful volunteers who would be willing to give of their time.
There are several roles for which we will need volunteers:
- Banquet Decorations Crew
- Help with ceremony
- Clean up and truck loading
DOLLS Headquarters will be in touch with the volunteers the week prior to the event with specifics about each need. Our volunteers working during the ceremony are asked to wear white and our setup/cleanup volunteers are free to wear comfortable clothing. Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve!
What will moms do during the ceremony?
Having our moms present to play a role in the emotional ceremony is one of the things that makes this event so impactful. A special element of our ceremony is the girls’ procession into the banquet hall. Our moms serve the important role of escorting our girls, by way of candle light, from the entrance to their assigned tables. Moms are encouraged to escort their own daughter into the ceremony. This will make for a very special memory between mom and daughter.
Can my dad, brother, or younger sister attend?
We ask that this event be attended by active DOLLS members and their mothers or adult female mentors only to best lend the evening to our theme of being the daughters and brides of Christ.
Does my mom need to purchase a ticket?
Moms planning to attend with their daughters will also need to purchase a ticket, which will cover the costs of her meal. Moms will not be receiving the set of gifts that the daughters receive, however. Therefore, the cost of their tickets have been discounted to reflect that difference.
